Zantedeschia aethiopica 'African Gold'


('productnameshort')

Zantedeschia 'African Gold' has deep green foliage with striking gold veins and big pure white calla lily flowers.


Description:
Zantedeschia 'African Gold' has big, bold, deep green, arrow-shaped foliage that boasts striking gold veins. Plants grow to the same size as the species (two to three feet). Pure white calla lily flowers arise from the distinctive foliage in late spring and early summer. For full sun and moist soils. Green until hard frosts. Mulch with fallen leaves - pack leaves around the perimetre and right into the centre of the plant to protect the crowns in winter. Calla lilies can be slow to bulk up in the garden so investing in a larger size is a good idea.
